Welcome to the Your Hair Story Series presented by Mixed Chicks. This dynamic, new innovative series allows Mixed Chicks users to share their personal stories behind their hair. Hair that kinks, coils, curls, waves, and tells a story reflecting their culture, race, ethnicity, and upbringing. Like our customers, hair comes in all shades, textures and shapes unique to each individual and here at Mixed Chicks we want to celebrate that to the utmost extent. Meet our exquisite Mixed Chicks women, men, and children who exhibit beauty from the root and give us honest, bold stories that we are honored to share with you.
In 2018, do you feel the conversation around being (Multiracial/Biracial/Mixed) has shifted more positively or negatively?
I would definitely say the conversation around being biracial has grown positively. When I was younger ,I used to feel like being mixed wasn’t a good thing. I was always “ not black enough “ or “ not white enough”. It was hard to be confident about my identity because I had multiples.As an adult, and nowadays ….. I notice more and more people talking about how they are biracial and they are excited about finding their true ethnicity. Today, I have so much pride in being mixed and i am very passionate about representing biracial women.
I found out about Mixed Chicks , years ago from a family friend .
My go to product is the Leave-In Conditioner. I always know my hair can use the extra moisture and i am always confident that will help with my frizz, strangle my hair and keep it bouncy .
I would say my hair definitely represents my mixed ethnicity. Just like my ethnicity, my hair is a little this and a little that. It is very curly, sometimes frizzy , thin but there is a lot of it. It takes on all these different forms depending on how it’s styled and what i use or the climate.
#itsminetodefine is such a powerful campaign. I’m my opinion, it means that if it belongs to me and is a part of me, then i and only i can decide what it represents. For example: my curly hair represents culture and confidence. It is big, it is beautiful , it is unique and irreplaceable…. it’s mine 🙂
My favorite protective product is the Hair Silk. It smells amazing, doesn’t leave he hair feeling sticky and leaves the best shine!
